“Excellent family holiday but choose accommodation carefully”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I was surprised just how much I enjoyed our time at Centre Parcs. The large site is set within a lovely forest which creates a real sense of tranquility, despite the number of people and range of activities that are available on the site. Our 8 month old daughter loved the swimming pool, soft play and playgrounds and there are many more activities for older children.

There was a good range of restaurants on the site which were not as expensive as we had been led to believe and the well stocked supermarket on store was quite reasonable. It also has a fantastic bakery with an excellent range of cakes/pastries.

We stayed in a comfort plus chalet in the oak area. It was quite a way from the main activity area and although there was a land train, it was actually quicker to walk. The accommodation was well priced but was in need of a refurb. All of the taps dripped which was quite annoying and the bathroom/(separate) toilet certainly looked as though they had seen better days. The kitchen, bathroom and sheets etc were clean although the floors had not been thoroughly vacuumed prior to our arrival.

Perhaps the biggest shortcoming was the lack of any laundry facilities on the site. Given that Centre Parcs is such a major family resort, this was surprising. A launderette would be sufficient and I am sure that it would pay for itself.

Despite these issues, we had an excellent time and are looking to rebook for next year - but intend to stay in an exec chalet.

Room Tip: The site is very hilly and some of the chalets are a long way from the main activities so look for s...

Just returned from 5 days at Longleat Center Parcs and had a great 5 days. We were blessed by good weather for October. Cannot fault the activities or the staff - all great, and restaurant food was good.
We took our dog and the accommodation worked well with a dog in tow - but Mr Center Parcs you do need to consider the land-train - suggest you allow Dogs in just one of the carriages as this would be a huge help given the dog friendly accommodation is A LONG WAY FROM EVERYTHING, small and older dogs just can't walk that far. Also on the land train - the buggies take up too many seats - have you considered using a trailer system at the back of the train for buggies - this would help with the over crowding challenges at peak times.

and - because a Dog is part of the family - best to think about BBQs or your own cooking in the evenings as not enough outdoor eating places when you have a dog with you,
Only let down - the quality of the Dining In (takeaway) food - poor quality.

Had an amazing time! Me and my sister went Monday to Friday and it was fantastic! We went shopping before we went as we knew the supermarket there was very expensive, and it can be quite pricey there, but as it was a trip for my birthday we were willing to pay to eat out every night! But if you are taking a bigger group I'd recommend going to Asda or somewhere to buy supplies!
The swimming area was lovely, the water was just the right temperature in both the indoor and outdoor pools, and the rapids was great fun! There was always someone cleaning the changing area which made me feel better cos I'm not a massive fan of swimming pool changing rooms!
All the restaurant are lovely, all the food is incredible, especially Hucks, The Pancake House and the indian at the Jardin Des Sports. The takeaway was very good, cant comment on delivery time as we picked it up on our way back after swimming, but its only £2.00 so worth it if your'e far away!
All staff everywhere were lovely, very friendly, and our accommodation was so clean and nice, we were very lucky to get so close to the Plaza (Pine Area, Woodland Lodge), although there is the land train so I don't think it would matter where you are really!
We also went to Aqua Sana one day, and it was soooo good! The staff were lovely and it was clean, and very relaxing!
The Plaza was very good, we spent a lot of time there as it was so close to our accommodation! All staff in the shops were lovely, wish I could remember their names, so I could have mentioned them in the questionnaire!
Overall, I'd recommend Centre Parcs to anyone! My trip was £400, we stayed in a villa that could accommodate 4, so split between a group of 4 it is very good value! Only downside is that the Supermarket and restaurants could be seen as expensive, but you kind of have to expect that!

Room Tip: Worth paying extra to be near the Plaza, although it isn't really too much of a problem as there...

What a lovely break we had at longleat .
Weather was beautiful and accommodation was brilliant .
Log fire in the evening with a glass of red wine and the dog resting after long walks in the forest.
Fishing ,bowling and crazy golf with a day out to see the lions .
All home comforts accommodation including a dish washer ..
Prices are very high and a little disappointing as they do take advantage of location.
Don't forget take supplies with you including fire logs as you pay treble the price in the supermarket !!

Great holidays, reasonably priced supermarket, did book an early slot for arrival worth every penny. Great holiday.Lodge was clean and immaculate. Cycles looked newish. Get ready for the hills, tho they are manageable if not totally fit.

Just got back from another great Center Parcs holiday, 5th time now. Great for kids and adults, swimming fantastic and wasnt too busy. Lodge very clean and had everything you would need. Only downside was the prices of food, drink and activities which can soon add up when there is 7 of you. You can spend as much or as little as you like if you bring food etc with you. Top tip bring plenty of drinks with you for going out, fruit shoots etc. Save a fortune. Alot of walking to get around as its a huge site which was fine for us but people should be aware of this! Great day out at Longleat Safari Park nearby, well worth the money. Looking forward to visiting the new village next :-)
